As a follow-up to my first piece for Harlan Crow ...Pres Geo W Bush at Ground Zero...and because of his interest in our American heritage and history, Harlan commissioned me to do a bas relief, 2'x3', to be exhibited on a new building just outside his main office at Old Parkland in Dallas.  Its' theme and subject is a depiction of my idea of what it might have looked like when Washington's boat was crossing the Delaware to begin the attack on the Hessian mercenaries hired by the British, in Trenton, New Jersey,  on Christmas night, 1776. 
* 
The event was probably the most important victory for our American fighting men in the whole Revolution.  We'd suffered several losses and were really needing good news.   It was a completely successssful route of the enemy...who were not expecting a move by the Americans on that night.  Their belief there'd be no attack was due to the terrible winter storm conditions...and a timely piece of mis-information given them by one of Washington's spies, John Honeyman.
 *
General Washington, at the front of their Durham boat, is shown pointing the way across the river.  The other 12 men (and a dog) are shown in their various roles, excited to the utmost at what they were involved in at that moment in time and, one of them, in the back of the boat, is shown praying to God for His protection and guidance.
